Pakistan icon Wasim Akram lauded left-arm seamer Shaheen Shah Afridi for the fact that he knows exactly what length to bowl at.

Afridi excelled during the recent tour of South Africa and Zimbabwe.

In the series against the Proteas, the 21-year-old took six wickets in the three ODIs at an average of 32.33.

As for the T20 series, he claimed three wickets in four matches at an average of 44.33 and an economy rate of 8.86.

Afridi was rested for the entire three-match T20 series against Zimbabwe, but played in the two-Test series that followed, where he picked up 10 wickets at an average of 16.40.

“He has a better sense of bowling and knows what length to bowl at. He has situational awareness while bowling,” Wasim told Cricket Pakistan.

Afridi will now represent the Lahore Qalandars when the Pakistan Super League (PSL) resumes in Abu Dhabi from June 9 to 24.

Prior to the tournament’s postponement earlier this year, Afridi was the joint second-highest wicket-taker with nine wickets in four matches at an average of 12.55 and an economy rate of 7.06.

The Qalandars currently sit in fourth place on the standings with three wins from four matches and will be back in action on June 9 when they take on Islamabad United.
